Among the Rocks

by Robert Browning

Oh, good gigantic smile o’ the brown old earth,
This autumn morning! How he sets his bones
To bask i’ the sun, and thrusts out knees and feet
For the ripple to run over in its mirth;
Listening the while, where on the heap of stones
The white breast of the sea-lark twitters sweet.

That is the doctrine, simple, ancient, true;
Such is life’s trial, as old earth smiles and knows.
If you loved only what were worth your love,
Love were clear gain, and wholly well for you:
Make the low nature better by your throes!
Give earth yourself, go up for gain above!




Autumn Song

by Dante Gabriel Rossetti


Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?

And how the swift beat of the brain
Falters because it is in vain,
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf
Knowest thou not? and how the chief
Of joys seems—not to suffer pain?

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the soul feels like a dried sheaf
Bound up at length for harvesting,
And how death seems a comely thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?

aku menghembuskan lagu ke udara, juga lalu jatuh ke tanah, aku tak tahu di mana; siapa saja yang tatapannya begitu tertarik dan kuat, sehingga dapat mengikuti perjalanan lagu itu?
lama, lama sekali setelah itu, di bawah pohon oak aku menemukan anak panah, belum patah juga sebuah lagu, dari mula hingga selesai aku menemukannya lagi di hati seorang sahabat.
The Arrow and the Song Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, so swiftly it flew, the sight<
